Watercolour painting of The Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate

This is a pen and watercolour sketch of The Turner Contemporary art gallery in Margate.


I hope I managed to capture it fairly well and got most of the lines going in the right direction, there is no way back with pen, once the lines are done they remain done.


The only way to get a seat in the right place was to spend £1.60 on a cup of tea which seemed a bit steep to me.


I haven’t really mastered trying to draw places from photographs yet, the problem is not so much not being able to do it, but that the part of me that does the painting and drawing just doesn’t seem to want to bother for copying a photo.


I had another look at the various exhibitions on in the gallery, all I can say is that there are a few, very few turners there that I really like on display there at the moment, particularly one looking down on Rome with a tree in the foreground.


I also took a few photos of the gallery from the outside.
